"A fine public house," mid Blanco

Watson, the humorist.

"YOB," I replied, looking at the

building we were approaching, "but a

strange position—away from the highroad,

and surrounded by villas."

"A very strange position. We will

rest in the public house, and I will tell

you how it camo to be built in such a

certain Bill Jones one night long ago.

"Bill was a young member of his

him bold. On this night he broke into

in the hope of carrying off her


"He succeeded in getting the jewels

and was leaving with them when he

found that the slight noise he had made

had attracted attention. A servant girl

met him at a turn of the stairway and

began to shriek. He rushed by her and

to the window through which he hod

entered. As he passed through it again

he heard doors being opened and knew

thgt the house was fully aroused."

> ~^ T I understand," I said. "Bill escaped.

The actress employed a detective.

The detective built this public house in

an oat of the way place, hoping that

Bill, as on oat of the way young man,

would call in one day for a drink. Curiously

enough, Bill did." .

Blanco Watson frowned.

"This is an intellectual story," he

said. "It does not depend on coincidences.

"I will continue. Bill avoided the

first pursuit by a long run across country,

and then walked toward his home,

not daring to use the railway. He kept

to the byroads as much as possible, and

at the close of the uext day hod reached

the neighborhood of London.

"A spade lying inside a field gate

suggested to him the advisability of

hiding the jewels until he had arranged

for their sale. After making sure that

he was not observed he entered the field

and picked up the spade. A tree of peculiar

growth stood just beyond him.

In the manner of fiction, he counted 20

steps due north from the tree and then

dug a deep hole, placed the jewels in it

and filled it up again.

"He arrived home safely that night,

but was arrested in the morning. The

servant girl had given on accurate description

of him to the police, and they

hod recognized it.

"In due course he was tried. The evidence

against him was very (strong. The

r.ervan t girl swore thut ho was the muu

eke met on the stairs. Some of the villagers

swore thut they had seen him

near the house previous to tho bur-

• glary. He was found guilty and sentenced

to .seven years' penal servitude.

"Bill behaved very well iu prison

and ut tho ond of five years wus released

on a ticket of leave. He decided to wait

until the ticket hud expired and then

t•> get the jewels and leave the country.

But a day or two after his release he

walked out to look ut the field.

"There wus no field. During the five

years he hud been in prison tho estate

of which tho field was iwirt hud been

built upon. He wandered ubout the

houses iu despair. But us he turned a

corner he saw something which suggested

hope. Behind some railings wus a

tree of curious growth.

"It was the tree 20 steps due north of

which he hud buried the jewels. He

recognized it immediately and run toward

it Again he wus iu despair. A

yard or two north of the tree was a

chapel, and the jewels were under the

chapel. He leaned uguiust the railings,

covering his face with his hands.

"It happened presently thut the head

like oue in trouble uud stopped uud

asked what WUS the matter and whether

he could help.

"For a few moments Bill did not

know what to reply, but then be spoke

"Months passed. Bill had changed

wonderfully. He had forgotten his old

habits and learned now ones. The deacon

was delighted. Not only was Bill tho

best of his workmen, but he was the

most regular attendant at tho chapel

"Bill longed for the jewels, and ho

worked hard because ho knew that

money would help him to got them. Ho

attended the chapel because while there

he was near the jewels, the seat he had

taken being just 20 steps due north from

tho tree. At first he had meditated digging

down through the floor one night,

but the chances of detection were great

and he had given up the idea.

"Years passed. The deacon had become

an invalid, and Bill practically

managed his business. He was an important

man at the chapel, too, and was

often intrusted with a collection box.

One day the deacon died. Soon afterward

it was known that having no near

relatives he had left his property to his

friend William Jones."

"I see," I exclaimed. "Bill"—

Blanco Watson shook his head.

"Bill was Bill no longer," he said.

"He had become a man of wealth. At

the next election of deaoonB he was ono

of the successful candidates. In future

we must refer to him as Mr. Jones and

not as Bill.

"Mr. Jones was a most energetic

deacon. He introduced new Members,

and he persuaded old ones to attend

more regularly. He started a young

men's literary society and a series of

Saturday entertainments. He made the

chapel the most popular in the district,

and then, at a New Year's business

meeting, he struck boldly for the jewels.

"The ohapel was too small, he_said

in tho course of an eloquent speech.

They must erect another on a larger

site. There was but one suoh site in the

neighborhood. They must secure it bofore

others did. He himself would undertake

only what they cost him. He wonld
